Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 321 Church Street in Tribeca, Manhattan. Located between Lispenard Street and Canal Street, the lot is one block from the Canal Street subway station on Broadway, serviced by the N, W, Q, and R trains. Peter Matera of Urban Standard Capital is listed as the owner behind the applications.

Early renderings are out for a sleek and modern building at 378 Broome Street, in Little Italy. The project will replace the Chapel of San Lorenzo Ruiz, a defunct Catholic church that was sold for over $7 million to real estate firm Urban Standard Development, after the Archdiocese of New York declared that it was no longer sacred.
Developer Urban Standard Development is now seeking a variance from the Board of Standards and Appeals to build three extra stories as part of a 10-story, nine-unit residential project at 142 West 19th Street, in Chelsea. The developer requires a variance from the city to build a project taller than seven stories, the height of the adjacent buildings, due to zoning rules that restrict new buildings on narrow lots from being taller than their immediate neighbors, DNAinfo reported. Filings with the Buildings Department currently resemble the 10-story proposal. If a variance is granted, the project would measure 16,903 square feet and its residential units would probably average 1,803 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Two of them would be duplexes. Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed a preliminary rendering of a seven-story building that can be built without a variance. Think! Architecture and Design is behind the design. A four-story, seven-unit residential building must first be demolished.
A four-story row house on West 19th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues will meet the wrecking ball for condos, and we have a glimpse of the new building that will replace it.
